About Martin Mueller

I live in Europe and this is my vacation place in the maine woods. It reminds me so much of Switzerland only that there is much more nature and animals here in Maine. Paradise for me.

Martin Mueller purchased this chateau / country house in 2011

Why Martin Mueller chose Bangor

Because I fell in love with it. It is in the woods but only 20 minutes from the big shopping centers or the airport. The people who live year round there are very nice and helpful.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

The air is so pure and the water is so clean and the people are so friendly. I have traveled the whole world, but this is home away from home, just perfect and beautiful. Take a cup of coffee in the morning overlooking the pond, watching the deer passing by, what more can you ask for.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We were 2 couples staying for 4 nights during the winter. Martin called Don to help us get in the house and Don was very friendly and even brought his dog for us to pet :-)



The beds are very comfortable, sheets and blankets are available, as well as towels. Everything was like new, perfectly clean! The hot tub is awesome, but required a bit of work to set up, because in the winter it is generally off. The kitchen is very well equipped.



We couldn't enjoy a lot of the nature around because it was snowing, but regardless we had an awesome time and highly recommend the place. Certainly worth going back during the Fall.

We can't wait to come back!

  • 5 of 5

We spent two weeks at Martin’s house this past August. We loved our stay there and are hard pressed to offer many suggestions for improvements.

The bedrooms are good-sized; the master bedroom has a sitting room with a television and a porch. The beds are of good quality and comfortable.

The kitchen is very nicely equipped. There is a large refrigerator and range. The cabinets are outfitted with just about anything you might require. It even has a Kitchenaid mixer, but none of our meals were ambitious enough to put it to use.

The main floor has a large living room adjacent to the kitchen and a porch. There is a gas grill on the porch we used quite a bit. The one day it rained during our stay happened to be the Sunday afternoon when we had several cousins coming to visit. There were plenty of places to sit both outside and inside and we had no problem entertaining everyone comfortably despite the weather.

It was so cool the time we were there that we never did jump in the pool. We did take advantage of the hot tub on several evenings – it worked well and the little structure was even equipped with a radio so we could pipe in WERU while we enjoyed soaking.

Our children are grown up, but the basement would have been a great hit with the games and equipment available down there.

The greatest aspect was the peace and quiet afforded by this location. There is plenty of wildlife to see (particularly early in the morning). The wi-fi hotspot is apparently over in Martin’s other house, so reception is a bit spotty depending upon where you are in the house, but the whole point is to get away, right?

The caretaker Don was very helpful and friendly. We even got to chat with Martin’s brother during a visit from Switzerland – a very interesting chap.

Bottom line, one can rent this wonderful place for less than the cost of two cheap hotel rooms in town where you will suffer with indifferent neighbors blasting their televisions and slamming doors at all hours. I cannot wait until our next stay here!

Thanks again Martin for the care you have put in to this property and the reasonable rate. We’ve rented other places on Pushaw Lake through Homeaway and there is no comparison – your rental is first class and spacious.

Great property, very nice home and close to Bangor

  • 5 of 5

The home is just 5-7 minutes from Bangor, yet it is situated on such a nice piece of wooded property you are away from it all when you are at the home. The home is very nice and spacious. Martin makes sure everything is just perfect for you and it was during our stay. We saw deer in the evening and enjoyed a walk in woods during the day. Being so close to Bangor, we could pop in town for groceries, shopping etc, and be home in minutes to relax. We can't wait to come back.

Great secluded getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Martin's home. Every morning we sat on the porch, drinking our coffee while watching the hummingbirds at their feeder. They were close that we could have touched them! We were also visited by a beaver and a deer in the evenings. The house was very clean, good location, and had everything we needed. The only thing we missed was the morning news (no satellite or cable) and the internet didn't always have a strong enough signal. It gave us a reason to not check work emails! We were a bit worried that the two window air conditioner units wouldn't cool down the house in the hot 90 degree weather but they did a fantastic job. When we first arrived we were also worried about the big home in front of the property (another owned by Martin) but it's far enough away that you aren't on top of each other. We met Martin's brother, Godson and friends from Switzerland. They were all very friendly and we enjoyed visiting with them on the porch. Please feel free to look at the amateur video of the property, located on this VRBO page, that we took using a tricopter. At the very end you'll see the lake off in the distance. We are sure to be repeat customers. Thank you Martin!

Amazingness!

  • 5 of 5

My long awaited review! Stayed here for Labor day weekend last year. Place is kept very clean. It is nice and quiet exactly what I wanted. Was fortunate enough to meet Martin's brother wondering the property. The chlorine in the hot tub was overwhelming, but felt nice overall. I would definitely go back and stay here again.

Fantastic Time - much needed relaxed vacation

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home! Everything we needed was at our fingertips. We are a busy family that was in need of a quiet, relaxing vacation. We got just that!! Toys for the kids already there. We sat on the decks and enjoyed the quiet, serene property while the kids explored the woods and grounds! LOVED IT!
